This beer is so spiced, it masks all beery flavors. Itís essentially like liquifying a gingerbread man and drinking it.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2002
Very nice looking ale with the scent of cinnamon potpourri. Mildly artificial taste but decent nevertheless.

aracauna (3050) - Georgia, USA - DEC 8, 2002
Clear red brown, bright. Ok head. Aroma is lemon pepper and mild pumpkin spices. Flavor is mild spices with sweet malt. Itís far from over spiced, but lacks a bit of fullness in the flavor for a good winter.

jbak (111) - Torrington, Connecticut, USA - DEC 7, 2002
Nice crystal clear copper color. Smells of nutmeg, ginger and a hint of cinnamon. Very spicey taste with nutmeg and cinnamon dominating, not enough malt presence. Very thin head and body. The spices are a little much but overall a very tasty holiday brew.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - DEC 5, 2002
Pours a clear copper color with a medium sized white head. Aroma is mostly nutmeg and cinnamon with a slight malt aroma present. Spicy flavor of nutmeg and cinnamon that is in good balance with the hops and malts. The spices do dominate, but are not too much.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 2, 2002
Has a slightly cloudy amber color and smells like a ginger bread. The smell continues into the taste and finishes with moderate bitterness. Overall not too bad as the taste is not too strong of spice. It is a good fall/winter beer.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2002
The best part about this beer is the aroma. That is mostly due to the fact that I like cinnamon and nutmeg. However, the taste of these spices and beer should not mix together quite so strongly. An interesting beer to try once, but there are better beers out there.

Love this beer! Canít get enough of it! I know that spiced beers turn off a lot of craft brew purists but, this is a very smooth brew with a delightful cinnimon sensation to it. I offer it to my patrons as "Christmas in a glass!" This is a truly great beer to warm you through the winter months though, I recomend finding it on tap in order to fully appreciate it.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2004 I just tried the 2002. Just as good as last yearís batch. This beer rocks. The commercial description and descriptions of other members will have to suffice as I did not take notes while getting ripped on this stuff at a friendís house last November, 2001. However, the aroma and flavor are divine. This Winter Warmer will not disappoint. Happy Holidays.
